“These three days of testing have been interesting to make a lot of work with the bike, making many changes, knowing it better and understanding how it behaves in each type of situation. As the time marked, we have placed in the fourth position in the general and it’s to be happy. Both the bike and I have taken a step forward and we are ready to start the first grand prix of the year.”
